Subject: The term antisemtisim
The origins of the term "antisemitism" and also anti-Semite, anti-Semitic, etc. go back to the late 18th century German writer August Ludwig von Schlözer who coined the precedent term "Semitismus". While this term may originally have been neutral, by the mid-19th century it had taken on negative connotations, basically meaning those traits and stereotypes which were believed to pertain to the Jews.
The first record use of the term "anti-semitismus" was in 1860, by the Jewish writer Moritz Steinschneider. He used the term to describe Ernst Renans views of the Jews. The term is also recorded in the Staats-Lexicon of Karl von Rotteck.
However the person who is usuually credited with inventing the term is Wilhelm Marr. Marr used the term as a self-definition for his political views, and his organization, the Antisemiten-Liga. Marr introduced the word and his organization in his 1879 pamphlet "The Victory of Jewr over Germandom", which was the first known publication in German to advance the idea of a worldwide Jewish conspiracy.
The term "Antisemitism" was adopted by a number of like minded groups in Germany and France in the 1880s. There was a French newspaper L'Antisemitique by 1883, a German periodical Antisemitische-correspondenz and even a political party - Antisemitische Volkspartie founded in 1889 that used the term as a political self-identification.(Antisemitism; a historical encyclopedia of prejudice and persecution Richad S. Levy ed. Santa Barbara, CA; ABC-CLIO pp.22, 24-5)

Subject: Very informative book, material Jews call "hate" and want censored.
"Translated during the 1980s by the famous anti-semitic Liberty Bell outfit"
What the hell do you mean, "famous anti-semitic Liberty Bell outfit"? Did you get that from the very arrogant and domineering Jewish supremacists from the so-called "Anti"-Defamation League, liars and defamers par excellance? Or from those litigious sewer snakes at the SPLC (Semitic Propaganda and Litigation Center)?
Why not say, instead, "translated during the 1980s by the famous pro-White or White Nationalist Liberty Bell outfit"? Why do you instead smear them with this anti-gentile Jewish smear term? Are YOU a Jew? Your description only serves to bias the public's thinking against such material and dissuades who knows how many from reading it (precisely why this term is used!). I can assure YOU such material is factually correct, same as all other so-called "anti-semitic" material. If you were a fairminded person, you'd present the material from a neutral standpoint and let the reader make up his mind whether or not "anti-semitic", i.e., anti-Jewish.
I can assure YOU any anti-Jewish sentiment from the well-read and intelligent folks (not to mention brave) at the Liberty Bell, like all other Jew-wise folks, is very justified once one becomes Jew-wise.
"...the Jews, the race amalgamated from Orientalid and Near Eastern components, are of a foreign nature to us Europeans. They are different in body and above all psyche. They are most foreign and distinct from the Nordic race, however, whose origins took place under conditions which were just the opposite. Even today we sense that instinctively."--Eugen Fischer, 1938
"Our race (speaking of the Jews) is the Master Race. We are divine gods on this planet. We are as different from the inferior races as they are from insects. In fact, compared to our race, other races are beasts and animals, cattle at best. Other races are considered as human excrement. Our destiny is to rule over the inferior races. Our earthly kingdom will be ruled by our leader with a rod of iron. The masses will lick our feet and serve us as our slaves."--Menachem Begin, Israeli Prime Minister and former member and leader of the notorius Zionist terrorist gang, Irgun, from a speech to the Knesset [Israeli Parlament], quoted by Amnon Kapeliouk, "Begin and the Beasts," New Statesman, June 25, 1982
Such vile, disgusting, bigoted and hateful words were never, ever uttered by Adolph Hitler, Josef Goebbels nor anyone else with pro-White beliefs. Not ever!
